The classical nominations for this year's Grammy Awards include a diverse range of prominent names and pieces, with a recording of John Adams' "City Noir" receiving two nominations and the Los Angeles ensemble Partch also netting two nods.

The Seattle Symphony also fared well, receiving multiple nominations for three different recordings.

"City Noir," which was co-commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, had its world premiere at Walt Disney Concert Hall in 2009. The album receiving the nominations was recorded by the St. Louis Symphony under the baton of David Robertson.

The recording was nominated in the categories of orchestral performance and engineered classical album.

The other nominees for orchestral performance include the Seattle Symphony for its album of Dutilleux's Symphony No. 1; the Pittsburgh Symphony for its album of Dvorak's Symphony No. 8; the Berlin Philharmonic for its album of Schumann's Symphonies Nos. 1 to 4; and the Atlanta Symphony for its recording of Sibelius' Symphonies Nos. 6 and 7.
